A FILM OF ALL FILMS: Content piece using IMDB source code

Content piece using IMDB source code

A FILM OF ALL FILMS: For this content collaboration with IMDB.com (the Internet Movie Database) we developed a piece of software that could take source code from the IMDB website and generate a title card for each film. The software automatically converts each title card into a single frame on a timeline, creating an original computer generated film - a film of all films - in this case, every film made in the year 2007.

As each title flashes up for one single frame, all the films blur together. Interestingly enough, the films that have the most cut through tend to be the pornographic ones, because in any given year they will produce things like "Horny Housewives 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7" - meaning that the title stays up for longer than the others. What is also interesting to note is the sheer number of pornographic productions, and their overwhelming presence on IMDB.com, something neither we nor they had expected.
